The sights and sounds of summer, the finale

I hope you are holding up in this scorching heat and enjoying the last few weeks of summer. Summer seems to last forever and I would be perfectly happy if it only lasted a month or two. I can already feel a bit of the summertime blues creeping in, and I'm counting the days until fall and cooler weather arrives.

Hannah Thomas at The Listening Room at Irish Bred Pub

Wow, it's been one ridiculously hot summer. How many days in a row have the thermometer hit 90 degrees? Fortunately, though, throughout this heat, we've had a lot of great local music to help us through these dog days of summer, and this week looks to continue that trend. Here's a look at what's on tap.

Have you ever thought …

One of the keys to economic development is to have good transportation. It is said that transportation ranks right up there with a good labor force and good educational resources. Of course there are other factors but we are blessed in all three of those areas as a community. Think with me for a few moments about our good position when it comes to transportation.

Have you ever thought…

Headlines remind us each day that many in the world are facing serious challenges. While none of us can answer all the challenges, all of us can respond is some way to be a part of the answers and not the problems.

Have you ever thought …

Plenty of thoughts come to mind when thinking of the Covington Square: a variety of shopping; good places to eat or meet for a drink; ice cream cones, fresh-banked cinnamon rolls or a gift basket of olive oil.

Have You Ever Thought …

I am writing the opening words for this column as I wait to go to the Square to join in our community wide July 4th celebration. It is great to be an American. It is also a great day to recommit ourselves to using the freedoms we inherited in ways that will make our community and world a better place for those who will follow us. The real value of the gift of freedom is the fruit that comes from those who use it wisely.
